The 2012 movie titled “Flight” is a great movie to watch. It had me hooked from start to finish. I do not want to be a party spoiler, so I will not go into much details as to what transpired in the movie. The movie stars Denzel Washington. Basically, it is a movie about an airline pilot named Whip Whitaker (Washington) who miraculously crash-lands his plane in an open field after a mid-air catastrophe that basically knocked out a lot of the plane’s control mechanisms. If any other pilot was flying the plane, as was acknowledged in the movie by his superiors and others, no one would have survived the crash. But even as Whitaker is being hailed for his heroic efforts, a number of questions arise as to who or what was really at fault. This is because it could be due (1) to Whitaker’s abuse of drugs and alcohol, which he did the very night before the crash, or (2) to the plane itself which was acknowledged as being faulty from before it took off for the flight. You need to watch the movie to see how it all unfolds.
Flight is action-packed, engrossing and powerful. I would recommend anyone to watch it. But be mindful of the R rating that the movie has due to the presence of drug and alcohol abuse, language, sexuality/nudity and an intense action sequence. Parental discretion is strongly advised. All in all, I give the movie a thumbs up and a 4 out of 5 stars rating.
